Hulu Launches Publishing Tool, Linux Support

Los Angeles-based video streaming firm Hulu told its users today that it has launched two new, experimental projects in its Hulu Labs section. According to Hulu, it has launched a new publishing tool--Hulu Publisher Tool--which helps reporters, bloggers, website editors, and others to find and embed premium video content from the site and elsewhere. In addition, Hulu said it has created a new, Linux desktop application which allows users to browse and watch shows through Hulu's own user interface. That application was previously only available for Mac and Windows users.
